Ducks Downed by Diamonds

After a courageous performance, Aylesbury eventually succumbed to a 4-1 defeat at title hopefuls AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

The clearly tense hosts lifted the mood at Hayden Road when they scored with their first shot of the game - a stunning shot from 25-yards.

A second goal of equally impressive nature then gave Diamonds control before half time, though it was a little harsh on United.

Aylesbury were given hope courtesy of a bizarre own goal reducing the deficit, but any earlier nerves Rushden exhibited were swept away with two further home goals to complete their win.
